A tidier, more polite lobster roll ... courtesy of Canada

The lobster roll is a summertime favorite in New England. Fresh lobster, a little mayo, some dill and a splash of lemon juice. All mixed together, and then slapped on a hot dog bun. But up north in New Brunswick, you can find some delicious Canadian variations on the lobster roll. Leave it to Chicago-based food writer Steve Dolinsky to try them all.

The idea, she says, is to remember these people as individuals, not statistics.
